Ask the grumpies: Have you seen the pursuit of happyiness?

Leah asks:

Have you seen the movie “Pursuit of Happyness”? I watched it with my students tonight. I was amazed to learn it was a true(ish?) story. Does it just break your heart?

Neither of us have… heard of it?  Oh hey, it’s that one with Will Smith and his son.  I guess one of us has heard of it.  I didn’t want to see it partly because I get a little squicked with monetized inspiration porn these days and partly because I don’t really watch movies because they’re too long and I just don’t have time or the attention span.

    This is a good one today to add to last night’s protests: https://5calls.org/issue/matthew-whitaker-recuse-attorney-general
    When I called this morning I was able to leave a message the first office I called, so their voicemails are not full.

    Repub or Dem, lame duck or long-term, give your senators a call to let them know that the Mueller investigation needs to be protected. There’s rumors that if there’s enough caring from the public that there will be a vote to protect next week. But if we don’t care, then there’s not going to be any vote.

    The scene where he has to spend the night in a BART bathroom inspires horror in me to this day. I would NEVER go into a BART restroom for any reason during the day!
